COREY WEBSTER
Traditionally, every week we bring you a list of the top performances of New Zealanders who are currently playing abroad.


Corey Webster
Corey Webster
   #1. This week's number one is an international guard Corey Webster (188-88, college: Lambuth, currently plays in China). He led Guizhou to a victory over the closely-ranked Hebei Xianglan (10-9) crushing them 118-86 in the Chinese NBL (second division) in Sunday night's game. Webster was MVP of the game. He had a double-double by scoring 32 points and getting 11 rebounds. Webster also added 4 assists in 35 minutes on the court. Guizhou (13-6) is placed fifth in the NBL. It was his team's third consecutive victory in a row. Webster has individually a very good year with high stats. He averages: 35.3ppg, 7.6rpg, 5.8apg, 1.5spg, 2FGP: 48.3%, 3FGP: 42.4% and FT: 84.4% in 19 games he played so far. Webster is currently a member of the New Zealand senior national team.

Dyson King-Hawea
Dyson King-Hawea
   #2. Second place goes to an international forward Dyson King-Hawea (200-92, currently plays in Australia). King-Hawea could not help Diamond Valley Eagles (7-13) in their last game. Despite his very good performance the seventh-placed Diamond Valley Eagles (7-13) lost 66-76 on the road to the second-ranked Ballarat Miners in the SEABL-South group. King-Hawea had a double-double by scoring 16 points and getting 10 rebounds. He also added 3 assists, 2 blocks and 6 steals in 36 minutes. The Regular Season already ended. King-Hawea has relatively good stats this year: 13.1ppg, 6.7rpg, 3.4apg, 1.9spg, 2FGP: 55.3%(84-152), 3FGP: 29.9% and FT: 75.6% in 20 games. He played for the New Zealand national team in 2017.

James Paringatai
James Paringatai
   #3. The New Zealand player who performed third best last week abroad was former international forward James Paringatai (201-86, currently plays in Australia). He contributed to an easy victory against the 12th-ranked Slammers (6-19) crushing them 110-78 in the Australian State League (second division) last Saturday. Paringatai scored 7 points and grabbed 4 rebounds in 16 minutes. Geraldton Buccaneers (21-3) are placed first in SBL group. It was his team's seventh consecutive victory in a row. They will play only one more game in the Regular Season. And that game will be critical. This year Paringatai's overall stats are: 2.9ppg, 1.4rpg, 2FGP: 59.3%(16-27) and FT: 63.6% in 22 games. He played for the New Zealand national team five years ago.

Meehl scored 7 points. Sunshine Coast Rip (11-5) is placed fourth in QBL group. They ended the series of four consecutive loses. There are only two games left until the end of the Regular Season.

He recorded a double-double by scoring 21 points and getting 11 rebounds. Carter also added 7 assists. Brisbane Capitals (9-6) are placed fifth in QBL group. It was his team's fourth consecutive victory in a row. There are only three games left until the end of the Regular Season. So now every game will be critical. It's Carter's fourth season with the team. He has individually a very good year with high stats. Carter averages: 16.1ppg, 5.8rpg, 3.5apg and 1.2spg. He has a dual citizenship: New Zealand and Australian.

   #2. Thomas Giles (180-G-88, currently plays in Australia) contributed to a Norths Soul Sports Bears' victory against the sixth-ranked Crusaders (9-10) 88-79 in the Australian State League (second division) in Sunday night's game. Giles scored 6 points. Northern Suburbs Bears (13-2) are placed first in WARATAH group. It was his team's fourth consecutive victory in a row.
